Playing Fish

One of the biggest thrills in fishing is the incredible adrenalin rush you’ll experience when you hook that big fish that all anglers dream about. But to avoid telling tales of ‘the one that got away’, you’ll need to keep your cool.
Always set the drag on your reel before you start fishing, so that it will give line to avoid a big fish ‘snapping you up’. Then, when you do hook that biggie, be patient – and don’t panic!

Follow these simple guidelines and you'll have a fish in your hands in no time:

1. Keep a bend in the rod, otherwise the line will fall slack and the hook may fall out.

2. Don’t try and reel straight away; allow the fish to take line against the drag (or stretch the elastic if you are pole fishing) until it tires.

3. Then gently reel it back towards you and guide it over the landing net. Don’t stab at it with the net. Wait until the fish is safely over it and then lift the net.

4. Now slacken your line, so that you don’t hurt the fish, and lift your prize onto an unhooking mat, or to hand for unhooking smaller fish.
